Can any one help to advise how to convert Unicode(e.g.UTF-16/8) to EBCDIC in cobol PGM?

I knew we can use NATIONAL-OF/DISPLAY OF to convert EBCDIC to Unicode in COBOL PGM. But how to do with UTF-> EBCDIC.

Thanks a lot for your help?

From the COBOL Programming Guide manual (link at the top of the page), section 1.7:
Quote:
DISPLAY-OF to convert a national character string to USAGE DISPLAY in a selected code page (EBCDIC, ASCII, EUC, or UTF-8)
Use the second parameter of DISPLAY-OF to specify the EBCDIC code page.

Hello,

I came across a lot of UTF-8 to ebcdic conversion lately and I successfully used the below statement to convert a UTF-8 variable to EBCDIC data.

Code:
MOVE FUNCTION DISPLAY-OF (FUNCTION NATIONAL-OF   
             (UTF8-VARIABLE , 1208), 500)
                       TO EBCDIC-VARIABLE


Please let us know if it works for you.


-Rakesh.
